Even though more polled users may prefer Sony’s PlayStation 4, it appears Microsoft’s Xbox One has become the sales leader for this past weekend’s Black Friday event, at least as far as Target and Walmart are concerned.

A report from InfoScout indicates that the newly released next-gen console has had no problem leading the sales charts, with a whopping 31 percent share of the game market over the weekend. Even with its high price of $499, it’s had no trouble selling out in stores that carry it.

In second place, Microsoft also dominated with its Xbox 360, with a close 30 percent share. A lot of stores sold the console at a discount price, such as Wal-Mart with its 4 GB $99 bundle and Best Buy with its four-game 250 GB bundle for $189.

Sony picked up the slack in third and fourth place, with the PlayStation 3 sitting at 15 percent market share and the PlayStation 4 close behind with a similar percentage.

Meanwhile, Nintendo lagged behind, with the Wii U in fifth place with a 6 percent share, and the Wii with a meager 1 percent.

In terms of game sales, Activision’s Call of Duty: Ghosts easily made its way to the number one slot, with Disney’s figure-oriented adventure game Disney Infinity in second place. Rounding out the list were Activision’s Skylanders: Swap Force, Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V and EA Sports’ football sim Madden NFL 25.
